    I'm pretty sure Aww Smack is pretty much the best taunt ever.

    I don't know, it was a "hidden" taunt in ut2k4. I guess you can draw your own conclusion ;)

    "Burrrrn, baby!" (female voice)
    "I am the Alpha and the Omega"

    Don't really remember anything from UT2003/4, but from UT3 I love the "Eff yeah!" taunt the most.

    what we need in UT3 is a Voice Menu and ability to choose voices. Then we can use whichever voice we like and make any taunt packs we want. Now we're stuck with them as they are and no voicepacks...

    Some good taunt would be.

    "I am forever"

    "Mortality is your weakness"

    "He has foretold my victory"

    No wait those are stupid taunts. Epic lets drop all this pretentiousness and get back to the "Squeal Boy, Squeal".

    I have them turned off. I can't remember the setting right now, but I don't think it was an .ini tweak. Look around in sound settings.

    My favorite from 2k4: "flesh is a design flaw", "your programming is inferior".
    All UT99 male and female taunts sounds good IMO.
    The worst are Necris taunts in UT3, that's for sure. 2k3 Nightmare are only a little bit better IMHO.
    UT3 robots are kinda funny, I like them.

    Overall UT had the best taunts. They were simple, but to the point and very effective. The robots in UT2 were hilarious ("your programming is inferior"). I'm not sure what happened in UT3, but the quality of the voices/taunts really plummeted in that one, I think. It seems like Epic tried too hard to make them clever, funny or sophisticated.

    I liked most of the Necris taunts, though ("I'll be back... again, and again", "Life is weakness" or "Let me show you hell" were really cool IMO). At the same time, they also had the taunt which made me cringe the most: "I hunger". WTF? To me, that one makes the least amount of sense of them all. Just what is the POINT of that taunt?

    I wonder why Epic decided to make the Iron Gaurd females sound so god-awfully annoying. Why? Why? Do they like women with annoying voices over there? I shall never know...
    Anyway, I think it would've been much better if they sounded like the merc females from UT2 (e.g. Sapphire). Those were the nicest female voices in the series to me, next to the female soldier voice from UT. I silently hope that these female voices will be replaced in the expansion. It's probably not going to happen, but it would make the game a lot easier on my ears.

    Also, the game really needs another "Ha! Ha! Ha!" taunt.

    Lastly, some other really cool taunts were about every single one of them used by UT's Xan. "Run, human!", "Witness my perfection", and of course "I am the alpha and the omega". But should these taunts make a return, then reserve them only for a boss character, so that alone would make him look cooler than every other character in the game. Not the way they did in UT2, where the Xan taunts were divided among the "regular" characters, making them lose a lot of their impact.

    Yes they just get more ridiculously over the top, just like the "story". The game was at its best when it seemed to take itself somewhat seriously.

    UT3 tounts tended to be to long or to short.

    "I hunger!" vurses "You'll feel the impact of that one, in a moment."

    Both could have been improved with a little chop and change.

    "I hunger for your death." and "You'll feel that one heh."

    See makes far more sence if changed a bit.

    In my opinion, the best battle voice in the Unreal series is the Warlord one. Kickass laugh.

    I'd like to see some game type related taunts as well.

    Something like: "Try healing your core next time!" "You call that orb running!?" "What the hell is our orb carrier doing!?" (So that players don't have to bother typing this). And I definitely hope we get Malcolm's "That's my flag, bitch!" :D And I agree, we need laughing taunts for all the characters.
